Very happy. Can't live without it now. It have become natural to look at.

For my part it have help me getting the big picture for price action. It might take me several month before I can simplify what I am doing, and make a indicator there don't need a big screen. My purpose is to have a lot of data on screen, on one chart.

Only thing is reflection on screen if there are bright light in room. But not a problem for my part.

Yes I saw similar reviews saying the screen was too glossy for professional use. I'm still trying to figure out if I can cram two of these on my desk, side-by-side, and I am equally concerned about the border being right in the middle and center of my field of view.

I've tried to think back to the last time I had only two monitors, it was 15 years ago or more, and I don't really recall thinking the border in the center of my field of view was a problem.

However, another concern is people saying the viewing angles were not great. When you have two monitors, this would be greatly amplified especially at the edges/corners on the outside. I'm not watching movies, just looking at charts, so I think it would probably still be OK but not sure.

It is an extremely painful process to get this monitor, because it has to (a) be imported into the US [until Philips starts selling in US], then (b) imported into Ecuador. This raises the price of the monitor by over 50%, and it also makes returns/repairs/replacements impossible, so I have to really be positive in the decision.

I would look at what my need / specification is. If it is many small charts, then other screen can solve that. If there is a need for one big chart, then go for it. two 40" side by side is very big, even for me.
My own solution is 1 40" and 3 28". From time to time all of them is running. Most of the time it is 40" and one 28"

40" use for what I can measure is 42.7 Watt

I'm too anal to have mis-matched monitors on my desk, I've done it in the past with just different manufacturers of the same size panel and couldn't stand it, so definitely couldn't handle two completely different sized panels.

Maybe there could be another way around.

I have try with a 55" 4K TV for the big picture, but run into problem with signal from Displayport to HDMI 2.0 60hz. I have seen some converter there say it can convert PC displayport to HDMI. But I don't trust that solution without seen it running in the real world. Anyway 4K TV are every where for some test.

You don't want to use a TV. Especially anything much over a 40", as it will look terrible. If you are using it to watch a movie from 10-12 feet away then fine, but not for anything where you are sitting directly in front of it.

A third possibility could be the very big screen in small size.


Only problem, you can't see your hands.

@jta3, how deep is your desk? If you were to have two of these 40" side-by-side, angled in so you, center at desk, could see both, how deep do you think the desk would need to be? And how wide?

I'm trying to figure out the angle required so that you could see the content with just turning your neck, and not your whole body, from left to right. If you can help it would appreciated!

Mike
